"360" m.d. sanjay gupta introduces us tonight to the disease detectives, trying to solve medicine's toughest mysteries. that's part one of a week-long series. we begin tonight, though, keeping them honest with christine o'donnell and how she spent money from her last campaign. last week after searching federal campaign filings we learned that the surprise republican nominee for u.s. senator from delaware had checks and expense records that didn't seem to add up. apparently, spending campaign money on personal expenses after the campaign was over, which would be a violation of federal election law. for instance, take a look. this check for $475. ms. o'donnell labeled it as "mileage reimbursement." but it was written three months after her last campaign ended. or this, $600 for her utility bill, paid to delmarva power. again, the campaign was over. tonight, more checks have surfaced, including campaign dollars to pay rent on ms. o'donnell's home, rent going to her campaign lawyer and former boyfriend, who bought the home from her when she could n

us that this book shows president obama as someone who likes to ask a lot of questions, they say someone who is decisive, and takes a broad view of history, national security and his role, that's from senior administration officials. the book, though, does portray a national security team that is deeply torn over the war in afghanistan. again, white house officials say that the book also shows the president who pushed to get the afghan strategy right. that's from white house officials. jon: some of the early reporting indicates that this book quotes the president in great detail. the white house gave bob woodward all kinds of access. why? >> reporter: and they always do, don't therbgs administration officials, and past presidents? this is his 16th book, the first 15 were best sellers, i mean, he's arguably the most famous journalist in the country. so the idea from an administration's point of view is to talk to bob woodward and try to manage the message, if you will, instead of having unnamed sores do that for the administration. jon: shifting gears, julie, the president's top e
? how much can you use him? >> president clinton has been an enormous ally for us and asset. two weekends back he was coming in the next day in pennsylvania, and colorado, and people remember that he was a president that came in when the economy was tough, and by the end of his eight years the economy was going well. remember, he and president reagan both in their first mid terms had approval ratings that were sim to where president obama's are right now, but president clinton did so many things to get that economy that was challenged climbing again, and i know president obama looks at his job and feels like it's basically the feel job, take an anemic economy and have it grow stronger, and deal with the deficits over the course of his presidency. there is much to emlate. the good news is, we had a wake-up call earlier in the year. none of the candidates have been running complacently. they have been running scared. for as much concerns people have about the democrats, look at the republican approval rating in the polls. this is not a popular republican party right now. >> some ma

state. the q4000 is used to lift the blowout preventer. why are we using it? the reason we are doing it is because when it was brought and originally, it was to operate the manifold on the see that what -- seabed that allowed us to do this static -- excuse me, a dynamic attempt at the top killed. altman we did that by pumping mud and cement into that show client heard before that, we were having to kill the choke line with the q4000. it was never intended to be the primary lifting device. the reason we are using it is, on deck, it has the electrical connections and a computer that run the yellow pdod, which is the control pod that runs the hydraulic lines and vowels and operate the blowout preventer from the surface. we married the yellow pod with the q4000 at the start of the response. because of that, we are excepting some limitations on what they can do compared to what the "discover enterprise," can do. is the response of? >> yes.

child got sick and no doctor knew why? what would you do? 360 md sanjay gupta introduces us to the "the disease detectives," trying to solve med zin's toughest mysteries. this is part one of a week-long series. we begin "keeping them honest" with christine o'donnell and how she spent money. last week after searching, we learned that the nominee from u.s. senator from delaware had checks and expense records that didn't seem to add up, apparently spending campaign money on personal expenses after the campaign was over which would be a violation of federal election law. for instance, take a look. this check for $475, mrs. o'donnell labeled it for mileage reimbursement but written three months after her last campaign ended. or $600 for her utility bill, paid to delmarva power. again, the campaign was over. tonight, more checks have surfaced. including campaign money paying for her home and money going to the her former boyfriend who bought the home when she couldn't make the payments. ms. o'donnell said she has done nothing unethical. she's not talking. you'll see what happened when gary tu
security. u.s. troops pulled out last summer. iraqi forces had moved into the lead with considerable skill and commitment to their fellow citizens. even as they continue to suffer terrorist attacks, security infancies have been near the lowest on record since the war began. iraqi forces had taken the fight to al qaeda. this year sell iraq called incredible elections i drew a strong turnout. a caretaker administration is in place. tonight i encourage the leaders to move forward with a sense of urgency in coming to form a government that is just representative and accountable to the iraqi people. there should be no doubt that the people will have a strong partner in the united states. going forward, and the transitional force of u.s. troops will remain in iraq with a different mission. they will support iraqi troops in targeted counter-terrorism missions and protecting our civilians. a consistent with our agreement with the government come on u.s. troops will leave by the end of next year as our military draws down, are dedicated civilians are moving into the lead to support iraq as a result

and we have done that. hope there is 100,000 u.s. troops be removed from iraq. we have it moved billions of pieces of equipment out of iraq. this completes the transition to iraqis responsibility for their own security. u.s. troops pull out of iraqi cities last summer and iraqis have moved with incredible skill. even as our rock continues to suffer as the lowest on record and iraqi forces have taken the fight to all kinds. there is much leadership. this year also saw incredible selection that drew a strong turnout. the candidate for and been a station is in place as iraqis form of government is based on that the results of the election. tonight i encourage the rock leaders to meet this with a sense of urgency. they are as consul and accountable to the rocky crudity. the iraqi people will have a strong partner in the united states. our combat mission and our commitment to rock's future is there. going forward a transitional force will remain in iraq with a different mission. supporting a rocket troops of terrorism which in and protecting civilians. with our partnership all u.s. troops wil
. that is the measuring stick bayous. -- measuring stick i use. the second is, do they agree to term limits? i think the number one problem we have is the desire to be there forever, and that tells me it is about them and not us. term limits is a wonderful measuring stick to judge. offer a piece of paper that says, i pledge, and make them sign it. if they do sign it, they have at least one piece of paper in the future. you're not going to get term limits passed by the u.s. congress. it is not fair to generalize it, but there are exceptions. democrat and republican, so this is not partisan statements, but the fact is, too often it is about what is best for the next election and not the next generation. we are hurting america. >> newt gingrich would not make a good nominee for president because he could not make a commitment. are there other examples? >> newt gingrich's one of the smartest man i have ever met. i have served under him four -- four years in the house. i think you can make judgments about the character based on what they're alive says. -- what the alive says. >> -- the life says. when i
